I love to see the creativity that comes out during a couple’s wedding! Each wedding holds unique nods to the couple, their passions and history. This was also the case for Mary and Brandt, who invited me to capture their Game of Thrones red wedding at this fairytale venue in Lutherville, MD. Everything about this wedding made my Baltimore wedding photographer heart swoon, and I can’t wait to share more with you!

The Cloisters Castle Location

Cloisters Castle is a whimsical and historic venue. Located a short 17 minutes from central Baltimore, this pseudo-Gothic manor house sits on a hill surrounded by acres of woodland. Its proximity to the city was certainly helpful for Mary, whose family flew in from Ireland!

The venue itself is a representation of a creative dream. The original owners carefully designed the manor as a passion project. They collected antiques for its decor for years after its construction in 1932. The manor features colorful stained glass, medieval carved panel work, and chestnut beaming. Perfect for this Mary and Brandt’s wedding theme!
